Binnenstad Apartment Rental Photos and Description

Studio Apartment or guest room for 2 - 6 persons, respectively

We offer a romantic attic-studio on the top floor in a historic canal house in Amsterdam, built in 1607. Because of its nice location close to the Oudezijds Achterburgwal, the attic studio offers a romantic view over the namesake canal and over the roofs of Amsterdam. From the 2 room apartment you can look out over the canal as well, and over the historical canal houses with the typical back garden. In the same house you will find a guest’s room as well, equipped for 2 or 3 persons with a private bathroom available.

Arrival by airplane/train:: From the airport Schiphol by NS regional train to the ‘Central Station'. From there it is an approximately 10 minute walk, or 1 stop by metro to 'Nieuwmarkt'.

Arrival by car, parking: Unfortunately, there are only chargeable parking in Amsterdam.

Our recommendation:

The low prices park+ride parking lot Zeeburg, 6 EUR per 24 h, including a tram ticket for the return to the centre (subject to change).

Do you have questions? We will be happy to help!: We, a friendly agency with 2 persons in Berlin, convey chosen, well-kept private accommodations in the large metropolises in Europe for 17 years.

Amsterdam is one of our personal favourites. We recommend the attic-studio in the canal house '1607' especially because of its central location in the middle of the historic old town, its romantic view through the spacious glass façade, the flair of a canal house and its reasonable price.

The friendly host from Amsterdam speaks good German and very good English and will be on site to answer all your questions!

When I first booked this apartment, I was slightly apprehensive as it was so reasonable, but I needed not worry!!

The apartment is fantastic, perfect for 2 couples or friends! The apartment was very clean, tidy and had everything we could of needed! The TV was pretty modern and had a few English channels. There is a separate bedroom with access to the bathroom, a kitchen between with a table, fridge/freezer, cooker and then a living room with beds in the corner, coffee table and sofa. The bathroom is accessible from both rooms, you just have to use the hallway! The apartment is on the 3rd floor, so some stairs to negotiate, but nothing unmanageable! The apartment is also smoking friendly, which was a must for us! The apartment is not ultra modern, but as a base for sleeping, eating and resting our feet, we couldn't of asked for more!

Now the location is AMAZING!! I was worried about how noisy it would be at night, being so close to the Red Light District but it wasn't too bad. We were also there over the weekend and Kings Day celebrations so expected it to be noisy and busy. We were sleeping in the room which looks over on to the street, so we expected some noise!

The apartment is easy to find, and the guy that lives downstairs that greeted us, Rob, was very friendly and helpful!! They even provided a map which they had marked off the ATM's and supermarkets, again SUPER helpful! Petra who I booked with, was also very helpful!

Perfect place, perfect location and perfect price :) Already looking to book for my birthday in October this year! TOTALLY RECOMMEND!!

Completely amazing.

  • 5 of 5

Stayed here during gay pride last year with my big sister, partner and his friend. The man who lives in the bottom floor of the house is so welcoming. He was helpful and also polite. The apartment itself is lovely and comfortable. we stayed on the third floor. It had one bedroom, a living room with tv, which also has a USB port so you can watch movies from a usb, a large kitchen and also a shared toilet which was lockable from the apartment. its In an AMAZING location with a view right over the river, spent may mornings sitting the the chairs watchuing the world go by below us. Would love to stay here again and thinking of book it soon.

Worst experience ever!

  • 1 of 5

My friends and I stayed at the apartment for fuor nights. The building is nice from the outside but as soon as you go inside, you literally have to climb the stairs in order to get to your room which we did not find extremely claen. However, what made me regret booking it was the disloyal and unprofessional attitude of those who work there. We were asked to pay a sum of money as a deposit for each room key that would have been given back to us at the end of our trip. Nobody ever gave us our money back, saying we were out of our mind and a bunch of liars.

Amsterdam is a wonderful city, I'm sure you will find a convenient place where to stay and honest people to deal with, but you should do your research somewhere else because you won't find it at this one.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

Very confortable apartment in great location. At one end of the red district,

2 minute walk from the Dam and 10 from Centraal Station. Mark was very kind and helpful. Stairs are very narrow (very common in Amsterdam), and the apartment is on the third floor, so not convenient for heavy baggage.

Centraal Station
Car: not necessary

Thanks to the very central location, you can discover Amsterdam easily on foot or by bike. To the Amsterdam Main Station, the 'Central Station,' you just have to walk about 10 minutes. The connections for the public transportation are very good (tram, bus, subway, regional train). The Oudezijds Achterburgwal is one of the oldest canals (waterway) in Amsterdam. The Northern part of this canal is located in the lively red light district 'de Wallen', in the Southern, quieter part there is e.g. the Amsterdam university, the listed monument Binnengasthuis and the romantic Oudemanhuispoort (book market). The accommodation is located in the middle of the canal, exactly at that spot where the lively red light district and the quieter, Southern part with the university district meet.
